Collaboratively designed and built by hand in Los Angeles.

Plank LA operates as a co-op. We collaborate with local artisans and craftsmen to create custom, unique furniture. We operate with five basic principles: simplicity, distinctiveness, the potential to appeal to  large groups of people, flexibility, (the ability to be easily produced in a variety of sizes and colors), and affordability.

Created and sold locally, in the Los Angeles and South California. We can ensure the furniture is properly delivered with the highest quality when it arrives at your front door.

Materials are sourced from local suppliers, which allows us to select the materials and manage the consistency and availability of the raw materials that go into our pieces.

The craftsmen who make our furniture are all local to the Los Angeles area. Nothing is outsourced to far away places so quality can be verified at each step of the build process.

Summer 2018 Collections

This inaugural collection (released in June 2018) consist of four lines of furniture. All of the funiture is indoor/outdoor except where noted. Outdoor woods such as Cedar, Redwood, and White Oak are used in each line as well as outdoor rated finishes with UV protection and low to zero VOC.

The beauty of Latin American encaustic tile is mesmerizing. Choose your tiles and finishes. The earthiness of the texture evokes images of Mexican villas with floors and walls tilesd by local craftsmen. PlankLA works with local tile importers to integrate the tile textures into a culturally rich collection. We opted for a wood base and frame reinforced with steel, which allows a simple but elegant design. We use one of the finest penetrating sealants to preserve and enhance the beauty of the stone.

A collaboration with Stan Smith at 'Things Done With Wood'

Stan Smith, at “Things Done With Wood” makes uniquely spectacular pieces of furniture with ease. He is a master at manipulating grains to create simple and elegant pieces. Stan sees the natural beauty in wood and embraces athe imperfections with boldness and creativity. The Complexions line is made from poplar, which is considered a paint grade wood and alder, which is also considered a common, pedestrian wood. The wood is beautifully manipulated and sealed in a deep epoxy resin which allows the grain to pop.

The creation of the Elements Collection starts with a fascination of textures and colors. The collection has a penetrating finish made in Belgium and popular in Europe, Africa, and Asia. It has little to no sheen but this finish enhances the natural┬ábeauty of the wood. With the collection, we integrated Shou Sugi Ban, an ancient method of preserving wood by burning it. Carefully burning the wood ‘pops’ the natural gain, creating a beautiful zebra-like finish.

A collaboration with Lonnie ``Lonkente`` Edmond

Lonnie “Lonkente” Edmond is an artist and painter with a passion for Afrocentricity expressed through simple shapes and colors. Through his art, Lonnie portrays the rich history and culture of Africa. For the Lonkente Collection, we use exotic woods from Africa and carefully integrate the essential shapes in Lonkente’s art so as to keep the collection as alive as it is on canvas. The pieces have elegant frames and bases that showcase the tabletops without distracting from their beauty.
